The aim of orthodontics is to straighten teeth on their osseous base and to achieve good harmony between the two dental arches.

The best time to start the first orthodontics control is usually at the age of 6, when the first molars come through.

In the event of an inadequate fusion of the two maxillary bones, early treatment will help to correct the most severe occlusion anomalies, taking advantage of the child’s growth.

When the maxillary bones have adequately fused, we usually wait until the child reaches the age of 10 or 12 to take action.

It is also possible to carry out the treatment on adults, provided that they have good oral health.

Orthodontics according to your needs

  • Invisible orthodontics

Invisalign: is a computerised orthodontic system. Unlike conventional orthodontics, Invisalign is controlled by computer, which gives it greater precision.

This type of orthodontics straightens teeth by using small removable and almost invisible moulds called aligners. Aligners are custom made for each patient and they are changed every 2 weeks.

Aligners make the teeth gradually move week after week until they are in the ideal position.

It is a predictable, effective and comfortable system that changes and improves the smile of patients without interfering in their everyday life.

  • Lingual orthodontics

This is an orthodontic system that works in much the same way as the conventional one, with the exception that the braces are placed on the internal surface of the teeth.

It is a formidable alternative as it gives the same results as the conventional method, giving the patient a great appearance.

  • Invisible orthodontics

Braces (aligners) are metal or transparent.

  • Dentofacial orthopaedics

The aim of dentofacial orthopaedics is to guide and develop the facial bone structure in order to facilitate the straightening and positioning of teeth into the ideal position using conventional orthodontics.

  • Accelerated orthodontics using piezoelectric or ultrasonic dental treatment.

The team at Platón Dental offers patients a new orthodontic technique that entails reducing treatment periods by using ultrasound. The treatment favours teeth movement and reduces resistance during it. Therefore, we achieve a considerable reduction in treatment time and the side effects of conventional teeth movement.
